Products Liability

The National Law Review covers products liability law in-depth, from developments in defective products litigation to the repercussions for manufacturers and distributors of those products, visitors can read the latest news, stories, and litigation related to products liability on the National Law Review.

Lawsuits often involve various parties in this area of law. From distributors and manufacturers to local suppliers, retailers, and other parties that created a product, it often creates a tangled web of liability throughout. The National Law Review covers the latest litigation in this area of law and provides coverage pertaining to new legislation and laws in the area of product liability and product manufacturing.

Visitors can read about injuries that people sustained after purchasing and using a defective product, learn about possible remedies these individuals have when filing a lawsuit, and learn about new protections afforded by local state, or federal laws. Cases that are covered by the National Law Review include product malfunction, warranty defect claims, asbestos exposure claims, medical device malfunction, defective drugs, and transportation-related injuries in the area of product liabilities.

When filing a lawsuit, injured parties can typically go after different entities throughout the manufacturing process. From the company who manufactured, to a reseller, to a local supplier that sold a defective part, all of these entities fall in the chain of custody which may lead to liability, and possibly more remedies/damages, for parties who are injured and file lawsuits in such claims.

Procedural analysis of product liability issues is also covered by the National Law Review. Issues with filing a case in the wrong jurisdiction, the court’s lack of Personal or Subject-matter jurisdiction, possible statutory preemption, expert testimony, and other analysis are frequently covered for visitors online.

Coverage also extends outside of the United States. Cases in Australia, the United Kingdom, the European Union, and other regions of the world are covered by the National Law Review. Visitors can also read about product liability litigation from these countries, recommendations from the US Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC), and other government agencies, in relation to product liability litigation actions.
